Need to be able to select newer local files for uploading after site wide update.  Can't seem to locate the function which will slect only the updated local files in CS6.  Synchronization doesn't seem to work!?

Any ideas please?

I don't have much faith in server synchronization date & time stamps.  Too many things can go wrong.

I prefer the following method.  In Files Panel, right click on your local site folder.  Select > Recently Modified. 

Choose a time interval (4 days) or the date  between today and your last remote site update.

DW will highlight all recently modified files including images that were modified outside DW.

Click the UP arrow to upload files.

Use Cloaking on files or folders you don't plan to update again.   You can always uncloak them later if needed.

Hello, please see my comment as an addition:

it's well known, that in all these cases you describe I'm not a friend of a detailed troubleshooting. To be able to be independent in all this things It is one of the reasons why I prefer an external FTP program. The difficulties with which you have to fight encourage me in this opinion, not least because we always search for experts, we don't charge a "jack of all trades".

To manage several websites or to upload my files and sometimes for the opposite way, for a necessary download from my server or to use a "a site-wide synch", I'm using FileZilla. It simply looks easier for me to keep track of all operations precisely and generate or reflect easily the desired tree structure.

Above all, FileZilla has a feature (translation from my German FileZilla) called "compare file list". Here it's possible to use file size or modification time as a criterion. There is also the possibility to "hide identical files", so that only these files which you want to redact remain visible.

And even if it means you have to install a new program, I am convinced that there is an advantage. Here is the link to get it and where you can read informations about how it works:

http://filezilla-project.org/ and http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Tutorial#Using_the_site_manager

Mac: Mac OS X (Use: Show additional download options)

http://filezilla-project.org/download.php

Of course, you also need all the access data to reach your server and for MIME issues, you should contact your web host/provider.

Good luck!

Hans-Günter

P.S.

Since I use two screens, the whole thing became even more comfortable.
